In the under $10 range, it's hard to beat Segura Viudas Brut Reserva, but if you're willing to spent a bit more ($18 and up) Juvé y Camps Brut Nature Gran Reserva is an even better bargain. Unlike the overrated Anna de Codorníu, Juvé y Camps Gran Reserva is a truly special cava In Spain this is the cava often included in the more elegant cestas de navidad (Christmas Gift Baskets). It has a high reputation, and it deserves it. We drink Juvé y Camps on New Year's Eve and other special occasions. It's one of the few cavas that achieves that magical, ethereal quality of a great sparkling wine. This is best cava I've tried.
For years we could not find Juvé y Camps here in the U.S.--at least not in our area--but lately World Market has been carrying it at a great price.
